On Friday morning, Hubby and I were driving to Parklands and at the junction near Visa Oshwal, there was a guy on crutches begging from passing motorists. (Forgive me if it sounds bad but guys who beg around Westgate and Parklands are very choosy on who they beg from. …)So the car in front of us was a Mercedes 200 driven by an Indian guy. As we waited at the junction for the road to clear, the guy opened his door and handed what looked like a Ksh 20 or 40 coin to the guy on crutches. This is where it got interesting…. the guy on crutches begged for some more and when the Indian guy declined, he threw the coin back at him and said something we could not hear but I know it was not pleasant.
Heee, I though times were tough and we should all be grateful for what we have whether we worked hard for it or begged for it. I never saw a beggar who turned down what he was offered! Interesting.
